The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has thrown its wait behind the importation of Chinese doctors to assist Nigeria to combat the spread of the dreaded coronavirus pandemic in the country.
APC says the move by Federal Government to seek medical support from China is in the interest of the country.
The National Publicity Secretary of the ruling party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu on Tuesday made this known to newsmen.
According to to The Nation, the party has asked Nigerians to support the move.
According to the party’s spokesman, “government’s action is not in anyway suggestive of the fact that our doctors and medical professionals are not up to date. Actually some are the best you can find anywhere in the world. They have proven this both within Nigeria and outside. They have held their own everywhere they have gone, but the situation now requires all hands on deck.
“No doubt, we owe the success recorded in the country to the ingenuity of our doctors and other medical professionals as well the political leadership provided by President Muhammadu Buhari, our governors, federal and state governments agencies, but the important thing in this situation is shared experience”.
The party then assured Nigerians that the government meant well in her decision. “We need to trust the system, those in government are no dummies. They are taking the right steps in the interest of this country. Whatever decision the country has taken in terms of allowing people from whether China or anywhere to supply us the badly needed support in terms of kits or equipments, our people should not worry. We should rally round government, trusting that this also shall pass very soon”.
